The Shortcuts to your Facebook


If you see Facebook as a benevolent time-waster, why not waste your time more efficiently when you’re there? Hit Alt+1 for the home page, Alt+? to search, or Alt+M for a new message.

The How-To Geek runs down all the shortcuts he’s discovered. Aside from Alt+M and Alt+?, most of Facebook’s keyboard shortcuts line up with numbers. 1-5 will take you (roughly) from left-to-right on Facebook’s navigation links across the top of your Facebook page. 6-0 will navigate to less obvious settings pages.

NOTE: If you’re on a Mac, you (currently) need to add Ctrl+Option+ to each of the shortcuts (Firefox on Mac is Function+Ctrl—thanks Robert Reents!). Other than that, they should work the same.

  • Alt+?: Search
  • Alt+m: Compose a new message
  • Alt+1Home page
  • Alt+2: Your profile page
  • Alt+3: Friend requests
  • Alt+4: Your messages
  • Alt+5: Notifications
  • Alt+6Account page
  • Alt+7Privacy
  • Alt+8Facebook’s Facebook page
  • Alt+9Facebook Terms/Agreement
  • Alt+0Facebook help center
  • The Geek notes, however, that the shortcuts work best in Chrome, and maybe Opera and Safari. In Firefox, you’ll need to add a Shift key to the combination, so as not to trigger Firefox’s own Alt-centered operations. On Internet Explorer, you’ll have to press Enter after hitting each combination.

    33% Of Facebook Posts Come From Mobile Devices

    According to new research completed by Dan Zarrella, almost 1 in 3 posts to the site come from mobile devices.

    The research is based on a random sampling of more than 70,000 Facebook posts, large enough to generate a 99 percent confidence interval with a plus or minus .5 percent margin of error. In other words, this is likely to be fairly accurate.

    Most surprising from the analysis was that the vast majority of these updates came through m.facebook.com, not through smartphone devices (although iPhone and Android accounted for close to nine percent total).
